Run Away

October 10, 2007
By Kate Westervelt, Congers, NY

Quickly and quietly pack your things
Your shirts, your skirts, your bracelets, your rings
A swirl of colors in a bag.
You are on the run.
The window to your left shows it’s still dark outside
And you know you can’t stop to hide
Until you see the rising sun
And even then it’s not safe
Because you are on the run
